Mojito Leo’s Chicken

My Uncle Leo loves to create spice rubs to give away as gifts for the holidays.  We tried this year’s creation last night for dinner, and the house STILL smells like a restaurant this morning!


I put lots of the rub under the chicken’s skin, and also on the outside, and basted the chicken, inside and out with the marinade about every 20 minutes while it roasted.  In addition, I also stuffed the two lime peels into the chicken which really gave it a nice citrus flavor.


The rice and beans are recipes inspired by the Maui Tacos cookbook we received as a Christmas gift from our friends John and Lesley of  The leftover chicken, rice, and beans will make a wonderful dinner tonight in the form of burritos!
